Trump's Cuba policy a major mistake

The only buyer of USA agricultural goods in Cuba is called Alimport, a state-run entity that isn't connected to the business arm of the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces, known as GAESA.

Americans traveling to Cuba could face difficulties because of President Donald Trump's recent announcement to partially rollback US-Cuban relations.

However, the Cuban government is not interested Trump and his demands.

President Trump's move asks the U.S. Secretary of State to launch a task force concerning the expansion of internet access in Cuba and to repeat the U.S. opposition to United Nations efforts to lift the embargo on Cuba until more is done to address human rights concerns.

"I am canceling the last administration's completely one-sided deal with Cuba", the president said, charging that President Barack Obama's policy ignored human rights violations and the Cuban government's role in fostering instability in other countries.

Trump's policy restricts this form of travel to the island for individuals.

- Trump's new restriction to only allow Americans to visit Cuba as part of a tour group received 44 percent support, while 32 percent opposed and 24 percent were not sure.

Casale said she would like to go back some day, but not while Cuba is still a communist nation. The other change the president talked about involved USA companies that do business with military on the island.

When asked what kind of pressure the USA can place on the Cuban government to obey that particular part of the president's executive order, the White House said the main piece of the president's policy is empowering the Cuban people. America is blessed to have such an articulate and strong advocate for our ideals as we have in Senator Rubio.

The embargo against Cuba, which only Congress, not a president, can change, will remain in place, Trump said.

Bishop Cantu in his statement reiterated the church's stance against the embargo, saying that "for decades, we have called for the U.S.travel ban and embargo against Cuba to be lifted".

The Trump administration is vague on what changes it actually intends to make, though officials have identified extradition of political prisoners and transactions between American businesses and those owned by the Cuban government as priorities.
